A veteran executive at Turner is leaving the organization as it transitions to AT&T ownership. Selection reports that U.S. communications chief Sal Petruzzi is stepping down.

Petruzzi, who has been with Turner for practically 16 years, has supervised U.S. communications outreach for the Turner suite of media corporations, the report notes. He broke the news of his departure now in a memo to staffers.

“There comes a point in your profession when it is time to say goodbye,” Petruzzi stated in the memo. “After almost 16 years at Turner, it is now my time to say goodbye. It is been a terrific journey, but the time is appropriate for me to move on from Turner as the organization starts to create a new chapter as WarnerMedia.”

Selection adds: “AT&T bought the Time Warner assets in June for roughly $85.four billion, and in current months, has been reshaping the unit, now recognized as WarnerMedia, to compete in a planet in which buyers are eagerly embracing video delivered through broadband technologies.”
